The back-up mechanisms traditionally and commonly used are just as susceptible to failure as the data itself. However, with CloudElephant.com, there is an alternative online backup.
Up to 20% of PCs suffer hardware failure in the first three years of use. That is a frightening statistic. Think about it. What is stored on a PC? Photographs, databases, spreadsheets, movies and so much more.
It is a new digital age. Day to day, whether at home or work, technology is relied on, on an unprecedented scale and data loss is common. 10% of computers are infected with a virus each month and 37% of these suffer data loss as a result of the infection.
CloudElephant.com has launched a secure online backup service for both home users and businesses of any size. Online Backup, or Cloud Backup provides a different level of security for data. Firstly, the software, called CloudFile, is installed on a PC and using the application, the files and folders to be backed up are chosen.
Within minutes of installing, CloudElephant.com backs up the files to secure servers in the cloud. As files are being backed up on an on-going basis, rather than as a scheduled event, files are protected all of the time. The files are encrypted to AES 256 standard. Any files that are added to folders selected for backup will automatically be added to the backup process which works seamlessly behind the scenes. Each of the packages available from CloudElephant.com can be viewed on the Cloud Backup Comparison page.
The software enables the backup of whole networks of PCs and even network drives, with some packages offering unlimited backup capacity. By backing up to the cloud, the risk of human error and of physical hard drive failure is removed.
Files can then be accessed through a secure connection on a web browser or even via an app for the iPhone or Android devices.
Should the worst happen, clients are provided with a restore client to help restore the files onto another PC.
